This application helps you keep your computer system up-to-date. It gives you the opportunity to download the newest versions of the programs installed on your computer. This way you are continuously provided with the latest features of the new releases.

Computer Updater has a neat and user-friendly interface. All functions can be easily accessed from within the left panel. At first, the tool makes an analysis of your computer and detects the programs that need to be updated. It's your decision whether you download the most recent editions or preserve the ones you already have. You also have the option to ignore a program from being updated; if you agree to do so, the selected app will be automatically added to a ignore list and it will not be displayed at a future scan. You need to manually remove it from that list in case you want to update it after all.

The best part of this system utility is that you can enable a scheduling pattern. This way, the tool will perform scans of your computer at the intervals you set. You can choose to run it daily, weekly, or monthly, starting at a given hour. When available updates are found, you are prompt either acoustically or visually, or both at the same time.

To sum up, the program is extremely easy to use. Only essential functions are displayed at the left side of the main window. I personally appreciate simplicity, mainly when we refer to the advanced tools. This is the case of Computer Updater which does nothing more, nothing less than to scan your computer and help you download updates.
